"Mana Mou" (Greek script: "Μάνα μου", English translation: "My motherland") was the Cypriot entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed in Greek by Hara & Andreas Konstantinou.

The song was performed first on the night preceding Turkey's Şebnem Paker and Grup Etnic with "Dinle". At the close of voting, it had received 98 points, placing 5th in a field of 25.

The song is an ode to Cyprus itself, with the singers likening the country's beauty to that of Aphrodite.

It was succeeded as Cypriot representative at the 1998 Contest by Michael Hajiyanni with "Yenesis".
